Hey! Listen! The Case Against Ocarina of Time

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has often been called the best game ever made since it came in 1998. Mitch Krpata of Joystick Division explains why that's totally not true.

NO! i wont listen, i wont read, i wont even open the article.

I saw the title and was like another hit seeking article but let me give it a chance and see if he might be correct.

Waste of internet space and here is why.

1.Chores masquerading as gameplay
Its Zelda and not God of War 3 - Every Zelda is based on puzzles and side quest and true fans of Zelda like they game as is.

2. A huge game world - with nothing in it
This game came out on the N64 what the hell were you expecting Grand Theft Auto 4. Even games from this gen suffer the same issue Fall Out and Boderlands ring any bells.

3.Half-baked mini-games
Mingames are optional and extends the game play - would you rather the game come with out the minigames.

4.Playing a flute as gameplay lynchpin
How old are and why are you comparing Guitar Hero a game which main focus is a instrument to a game that its main focus is an adventure game. Also playing a guitar does not make you automatically cool.

Now your just pulling sh!t out of your a$$. How is Navi any different than Cortana from Halo or Clank for Rachet.

Article is crap period.

Pretty much. I have no regrets voting down this site. It's guttertrash, pure and simple.

Lol, this guys is just nitpicking.

He deserves to be insulted xD

Never understood why people think Navi is annoying.
She never bothered me. =/

this game rocks if you disagree plz die :)

The thing is, and disagree if you will, is that a lot of gamers will definitly disagree with this game being the best game ever. (I aint one of them) but there will be others.

LocO_o2575d ago (Edited 2575d ago )

I totally agree with what your saying and to me Shadow of Colossus holds the crown of the best game ever. Every one has a pick for the best game ever but the article is BS because of the reasons he gave.

Thats like complaining that Golden Eye 64 did not have regenerating health or that the first Street Fighter did not have online play.

The guy is comparing a game that came out about 15 years ago to games that came out this gen. Zelda OOT was way ahead of other games in its time and still holds up to some games this gen.

Who would disagree? A bunch of frat-tard shooter bros chugging shots of Mountain Dew in their mom's basement? Chances are they have tunnel vision and only care about the next Fps the industry vomits out. As for the article, just another no-count site, run by a kid who probably started gaming this gen, trying to get his licks in. Pathetic.

I don't agree with this article, but the website is a pro endeavor run by Village Voice Media, and based on his personal blog I'm pretty sure the writer's been playing games since at least the NES. It's not some kid with a blog.

There is no best game ever. Only games that stand out from the rest. And it falls to the player to decide which in their OPINION is their favourite.
